Riff On Pradip's Dog As Mentor - Poem by David McLansky

My dog I rescued
From the pound
She sat sad-eyed
Nose to the ground;
Terrified at the cacophony of barks
Penned in a cage
In a sea of sharks.

Your crime, you bit a neighbors pet,
Your face was glum,
You showed regret;
You were bred by man to attack,
You ripped, you tore, a bloodied sack.
You looked at me over shoulder,
You had done your duty as a soldier
You had acted on your genetic nature,
Now they called you a vicious creature
.
Your Groucho Marx eyes caught my attention;
I had them remove you from detention;
And then you crouched at my feet;
Docile and pleasing, passing sweet.
Men and women can maim and kill,
We too are creatures of our genetic will.;

My dog barks at every guest,
Then wags her tail and acts a pest,
Demanding that she be groomed,
That she be petted around the room;

I too bark at every stranger,
Sensing in them latent danger,
Then I move around the room
and sing to each a happy tune.

    yes, as Voltaire said, the more I see dogs, the less I like men.

    Ten years ago I rescued my truest friend, the last dog, in the last cage, of the last row of the pound. We are inseparable and committed to the bond we made that day....staring into each other's eyes, I often wonder who rescued who? They promised me my dog, Shamus would get no bigger than sixty-five lbs...he's now 130 lbs. More to love! Most of my best friends have been four legged! PEACE to paws.... (Report) Reply
